It's January 12 and you know what that means! Don't you? Oh you don't? Well you should. 

It's the sixth annual Kiss a Ginger Day!

So it's about time you grabbed your nearest and dearest flame-haired friend and planted a big smacker on them. 

The day was launched on Facebook in 2009 as a response to 2008's Kick a Ginger day which sparked international outrage. Now in its sixth year, we reckon it's only a matter of time before this day becomes an internationally recognised holiday. 

To celebrate, we have lined up some redheaded celebrities that we would love to bump into today….

1) Eddie Redmayne

Toeing the line flawlessly between ginger and blonde, it's only fitting that Eddie's surname is Redmayne – considering that he literally has a red… mane…. 

2) Ed Sheeran

This one will be controversial as when it comes to Ed Sheeran, you either love him or hate him. 

From his talent to his tattoos, who are we kidding? We would definitely not miss an opportunity to plant a big one on him. 

3) Damien Lewis 

Rough around the edges, mysterious and a total dreamboat. 

We are still recovering from his topless scenes in Homeland. 

4) Rupert Grint 

Who would have thought that Ron Weasley would grow into the tall, hunky looker that he did….

He could singlehandedly make all our childhood dreams come true. 

5) Prince Harry 

Perhaps the most eligible bachelor on our list, we would take a royal romp with this prince any day. 

6) Domhnall Gleeson 

How could we do a post on redheads and not include an Irish face. 

Domhnall has been on our crush list for years but he really got our attention after holding his own on this smouldering Vogue shoot. 



Don’t you hate that feeling when you arrive at the boarding gate ready for your holiday and then realise something is terribly wrong?

Normally you realise you forgot your sun cream, or you may have left the hair straightener plugged in, oops.

For one 14-year old though, the reason she missed her flight was because she was too pale. Wtf? As of we didn’t have enough to worry about, now they expect us to have a golden glow before we even get on the flight?

When Grace Wain tried to board her flight to Abu Dhabi she was told she was “too pale” to fly. The staff at check-in were concerned about her health due to her pale complexion. Grace had to see the airport doctor, but the staff weren’t convinced.

It took a letter from her GP clearing her to fly which they managed to email to Etihad’s duty manager just two hours before they were due to take off.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Grace’s dad said he tried to explain that was how Grace always looked, she is a redhead with a pale complexion.

"One of the check-in girls then made the decision that she wasn't fit to fly based on the fact she was pale and leaning against her mum,” Paul Wain said.

A spokesperson for the airline has said "staff were concerned about the wellbeing of a young passenger ahead of a lengthy flight".

While the family did make the flight in the end, some of their luggage did not. Which left Paul and his wife Sheena at their luxury holiday resort with no clothes. For three days. Absolute nightmare.

Paul thinks the issue started because the flight was overbooked.

"It was a once-in-a-lifetime event and someone was telling us we weren't going anywhere. It was as if someone had just hit us around the head with a baseball bat… the kids started crying".

We think we would too.



You better appreciate your redhead friends guys, because they could be the last redheads around!

Apparently scientists are concerned that the increased sunlight in Scotland will have an effect on the red head gene in their population, as the gene is said to be a revolutionary response to their gloomy weather.

Dr. Alistair Moffat, who works at a genetic testing company called ScotlandsDNA said:

“We think red hair in Scotland, Ireland and the north of England is adaptation to the climate. We do not get enough sun and have to get all the vitamin D we can.

“If it was to get less cloudy and there was more sun, there would be fewer people carrying the gene.”

Well, there goes future redhead conventions anyway. We’re devastated!



Don’t drown out your stunning red hair by over doing it on the make-up. Stick to these five tips and you will have everyone pining after your ginger locks.

Stay clear of harsh colours like black and instead opt for a lighter and more subtle brown eyeliner.

When it comes to eyeshadow, peaches and of course browns are your best friends. Use a plum shade for night-time antics. It is also perfect if you have green eyes as it will really make them pop. Think Emma Stone.

Embrace your freckles
If you have freckles it’s time to embrace them. Stick to a light foundation that will even out skin tone without covering up your sun kisses.

Avoid the Barbie pink colours and instead go for crimsons and deep tones; however, make sure you use it sparingly.

Avoid using several coats – stick to a max two and go for a brown if you feel brave.
